I wasn't referring only to long running transactions. Indexes are clearly a way of reducing the working set (at least in a practical sense) but also vital for workloads with many short transactions.

I was not criticizing mongo per se, I was criticizing this post and other misguided statements about the working set as it relates to database software.

OK, it just seemed to me that the stated goal of Mongo-like servers was to take some of our accepted notions of the "working set as it relates to database software" and put them up for fresh discussion.
